China's relations with Viet Nam very important, say Chinese leaders
Premier Wen Jiabao, Chairman of the National People's Congress's Standing Committee Wu Bangguo, and Chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference's National Committee Jia Qinglin all said that General Secretary Manh's visit would enhance the traditional friendship between China and Viet Nam to a new plane.
Premier Wen stressed that China strongly supported Viet Nam's bid to join the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and was willing to share its post-WTO experiences.
The Chinese Government would create favourable conditions for all ministries, sectors, localities and businesses to promote cooperation and increase exchanges with their Vietnamese counterparts, he said, adding that major firms would be encouraged to invest in large projects in Viet Nam.
China would make efforts in the future to effectively carry out projects agreed on by the two countries and to raise the two-way trade to 10 billion USD before 2010, the Premier said.
The Chinese Government leader pledged to continue providing non-refundable aid and preferential credits for Viet Nam, and expanding cooperation in training, culture and tourism.
Meanwhile, Chairman Wu Bangguo emphasised the importance of exchanges and cooperative ties between the two countries' legislative bodies as well as between their elective agencies, especially the sharing of experiences in law-making work.
He stressed that China would closely coordinate with Viet Nam to effectively implement their cooperation agreements for their mutual development and benefit.
For his part, Chairman Jia Qinglin asserted that the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and its subsidiary organisations want to expand exchanges, cooperation and share experiences with the Viet Nam Fatherland Front and its subordinate agencies.
The two sides would together build and organise practical programmes in order to raise the younger generations' awareness of the Sino-Vietnamese friendship, he said.
General Secretary Nong Duc Manh said at the meetings that fostering the Viet Nam-China friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two Parties, practical and effective exchanges and cooperation between the two governments, two legislatures and between different branches and elective bodies in the two countries, between Viet Nam's Fatherland Front and Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference all played an important role, especially in exchanging experiences as a way of strengthening the Party's leadership and building a socialist state based on the rule of law. It involved the expression of the people's will in developing national solidarity and the ongoing reform of civic organisations.
Also on Aug. 23, General Secretary Nong Duc Manh received the Chairman of the China-Viet Nam Friendship Organisation, Zhao Dongwan. The General Secretary expressed his wish that the organisation would continue to propose incentives and practical measures under the motto of "Friendly neighbourliness, comprehensive cooperation, long-term stability, and future-oriented vision" which were in the spirit of "good neighbours, good friends, good comrades and good partners," and which contributed to the increasingly profitable cooperation between the two countries.
At the headquarters of the Lenovo Group in the Zhong Guan Cun high-tech zone in a suburb of Beijing, General Secretary Nong Duc Manh warmly applauded Beijing's development achievements and Lenovo's success. He was very impressed by China's modernisation experiences in general and Beijing's in particular. He wished the city success in organising the Beijing Olympiad in 2008 and expressed the hope that the Lenovo Group would expand its business to Viet Nam in the future.(VNA)
